Sometimes you just need a quick and easy crochet project for gifts or craft fairs.  These cup cozies are just the thing!  

Made with single crochet stitches worked in the round so no seaming & no sewing necessary – my favorite part!  And, since this pattern is worked in the round instead of turned rows it has a much nicer finished appearance in my opinion.

For my free crochet coffee cozy I am using Paintbox Cotton Aran yarn* which is a medium #4 weight cotton yarn.  You can certainly substitute any medium worsted weight acrylic or cotton yarn.  I like using cotton yarn for cup cozies but acrylic would work as well.
